  • Connect payments to your shopping bot: Razorpay has a built in feature on most website builders like Shopify and WooCommerce to connect your payment gateway as an add on even without an API, however shopping over Whatsapp has become increasingly popular and a dominant feature in procuring customers. Whatsapp has a huge base of active daily users and it allows for two way communication making it a preferred medium to explore when it comes to building customer relations and up-selling your products/services and recovering your abandoned cart sales. Digressing your customers to another medium however spikes up the risk of losing their attention. People nowadays have a limited span of retaining interest and hence providing a quick and easy solution to customers is the way to ensure lesser lead loss. By integrating Razorpay with your Whatsapp chatbot you are ensuring a way for your customers to seamlessly checkout through a messenger itself. This shortens the sale cycle making it easier for your customers to buy from you. Click here to build this journey.
